Corruption as a Governance Challenge and the Role of Civil Society

A first step towards a sustainable anti-corruption policy is to view corrupt practices as symptoms of a deeper problem in the relationship between state and society in general and in the function of democratic institutions in particular. These considerations bring us closer to conceptualising an anti-corruption strategy as an axis of a systematic reform policy towards social accountability. To implement effective strategies we need to pursue a more focused anti-corruption policies and to get away from a conventional minimalist approach of combating the phenomenon, mainly by choosing broader perspectives with the emphasis on accountability and the role of civil society in the consolidation of good governance. In this context, anti-corruption policy is a policy of accountability towards protecting human rights and in relation to any kind of development. Accountability supports good governance as is a co-creator of the active citizens' participation in a (transparent) decision making process.
